Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 18/10/21




Armagh JFC SF

Cross V Derrynoose

Well done to our seconds team and management who beat a strong Derrynoose team on Saturday evening to advance to the Armagh Junior Championship Final. The game was only minutes old when the heavens opened resulting in extremely slippy conditions. We played with a strong breeze in the first half, a half which was low scoring, two a piece at the first water break. Both sides had missed opportunities, the opposition slotted over a point with minutes remaining until the break to edge them in front. As half time approached, a super pass from Colin O’Connor to Eoin Keenan who hit the ball superbly into the Derrynoose net to put two between the teams as the game entered injury time. Derrynoose added a point just before the half time whistle blew to leave just the bare minimum between the sides.

Cross 1-2  Derrynoose 0-4

Derrynoose were quick off the blocks as play resumed, the equaliser coming seconds after the ball was thrown in. Again, there was along period of time with neither side scoring. Both sides traded points and as we headed for the second water break, the sides couldn’t be separated and it looked  like a draw could be on the cards. Derrynoose hit a long range point which sailed over and they converted a free to give them the lead with just over ten minutes remaining. Paul McKeown hit a cracker of a shot which went straight over the black spot to bring it back to one. Substitute, Johnny Hanratty followed suit in what was the score of the match to level matters. Again, Derrynoose edged in front when they scored from a free.  The game swung the other way when  it was Johnny McKeever’s turn to get his name on the score sheet, two points without reply and with seven minutes remaining, it was still anyone’s game. Derrynoose converted a free, level again and an exciting finale was on the cards. With the finishing line in sight, we pushed on, two points one after another from the boot of Shane McConville, to put us in a strong position as the game entered injury time. Four additional minutes was announced, Derrynoose converted a free but we hung on by the skin of out teeth and we now advance to the Junior Championship Final where we play Belleeks.

Cross 1-09 Derrynoose 0-11

Well done lads and management.
